About Us


The American Heritage Education Foundation (AHEF) is dedicated to the teaching and understanding of America’s philosophical heritage–including the Bible-inspired principles that shaped America’s founding–to promote constructive citizenship and Freedom, Unity, Progress, and Responsibility (FUPR) among students and citizens.

AHEF is inclusive of individuals of every race and creed and every religious and non-religious persuasion who respect every American’s natural rights as recognized in the U. S. Declaration of Independence and affirmed by law in the U. S. Constitution.
